Statistical Paradigms

Recent Advances and Reconciliations


This volume consists of a collection of research articles on classical and emerging Statistical Paradigms — parametric, non-parametric and semi-parametric, frequentist and Bayesian — encompassing both theoretical advances and emerging applications in a variety of scientific disciplines. For advances in theory, the topics include: Bayesian Inference, Directional Data Analysis, Distribution Theory, Econometrics and Multiple Testing Procedures. The areas in emerging applications include: Bioinformatics, Factorial Experiments and Linear Models, Hotspot Geoinformatics and Reliability.

The Jovtics is a short fable about good, hardworking people who arrive when someone is in need of assistance. The Jovtics never help those who wish others harm, who are lazy, or who forget about their friends. From the Jovtics one can learn how to share and give of oneself without expecting anything in return. They fly quietly and unnoticed above…
